        @bgillisp probably can, since he's a Global mod. But had he fixed the typo, my comment wouldn't have made sense anymore. So it's better to keep it.

      It's amazing how much more game dev you can get done when you have a few weeks off of work.

        I prefer cold over hot, mainly because I find it easier to battle cold (to a certain degree) than hot.. Like I can put more clothes to fight cold but when its hot, sometimes even if I dont wear anything its still hot.

        I mean, maybe that's a good thing, because the only excitement you can really get from an exam is a student having a breakdown, which, trust me, isn't desirable on either end.

        @Marsigne : It helps that I'm using the same skills and classes as The Book of Shadows, so I don't have to resign new ones. So it's mainly mapping and eventing and balancing this time.

        Here's a mock battle testing it out. Note everything in the video is a placeholder, you'll see VXACE and MV facesets side by side for that reason, and nothing is balanced yet:

        Also you'll see the victory aftermath lines don't match, that's because I copy/pasted them from The Book of Shadows for a placeholder for now too.

      I wonder how much game sales are hurt on Steam in June just due to people knowing there is probably going to be a sale in June sometime?

        I suspected it would hurt indie developers. But I guess that means we'd have to release our game shortly after June or December in order to maximize our exposure without a sale, right? (about the sale being optional, I remember RPGMakerMV not going deeply discounted for six months or so, so I'm guessing it's either manually or you have to contact Valve)

        @Marsigne : Right. That's what I hope to do. So by that reasoning August or February is probably the right time to release on Steam, as too soon after the sale everyone is broke too.

        @mathmaster74 : I understand that. If I based a game on my HS it would involve my HS crush transferring to another school, then once I moved on and found someone else she disappeared without a trace.

        Would make for a depressing game I know.

        You know what, if I ever make a school setting, it's probably similar to Japan as we adopted the same/similar system, except maybe the school building structure (tall building for classes, a large schoolyard right in front of the entrance, etc)
